There is no better way to learn the lifestyle of the Semai Tribe than by spending your night in bamboo hut surrounded by pristine and enchanted jungle. Peaceful night, only the sounds of insects and cicadas heard and wake up to the sounds of birds chirping. Take a nightwalk around the village and jungle to spot rare insects and glow in the dark mushrooms. Enjoy uniquely prepared meals using fresh ingredients, cooked in bamboo. Outstanding experience!
